First, the contest details (from the newsletter):
And finally, the results. The grand total is... (drumroll please)...newsletter wrote:Ravens and wolves have an interesting symbiotic relationship. Scientists in Yellowstone and other areas have sought to understand how ravens and wolves influence each others’ behaviors, though they’ve really only scratched the surface of this complex association. Ravens often circle in the air over dead animals, which wolves sometimes use as a cue to find carcasses to eat. In return, ravens frequently finish off any leftovers after a wolf-killed carcass and even eat alongside the wolves.
We hope to add ravens to Episode 2, and are holding this contest to raise the funds to do so:
• If we sell 50 WolfQuest t-shirts by July 7th, we will add ravens to WQ:Slough Creek as a guide to find carcasses.
• If we sell 100 t-shirts by July 7th, ravens will land and eat carcasses.
The profit from these shirts goes directly to WolfQuest development and maintenance, so whether you’re excited about ravens or not, please consider purchasing a shirt to help support WolfQuest. (To purchase a shirt, click on “Store” on the lefthand side of every WolfQuest webpage) There is also a new option to donate to WolfQuest on the same page, so please take that into consideration if you enjoy playing the game.
85! We didn't quite make it- we were short 15 shirts. But we will definitely have ravens flying overhead. A big thank you to those of you who have either purchased t-shirts or donated- your support helps keep WolfQuest going!
And for those of you who are a little more visual, check out the great wolf 'thermometer' design below, made by Dazzleberry and wolf567, with some updating help from sSilvers!
